Following the recent retirement of Dr. Ronald Haller from our Scientific Advisory Board, we are very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Salman Bhai to the board. You can read more about Dr. Bhai on our S.A.B. page. Our sincere thanks go to Dr. Haller for his service on the board since our inception.
Please refer to the vaccine distribution plan for your country/local region. To the best of our knowledge, there is no reason why COVID-19 vaccines should cause any particular issue to someone with a muscle GSD. Please consult your primary physician for individual guidance.
GSD3 INFOGRAPHIC LAUNCHED
Recently IamGSD shared an online global survey for GSD3 on our website. The survey has been finalized and much of the results are captured in an infographic, publicly available now. Go to our GSD3a page for more details and a link to download a PDF of the survey report.
JOIN THE CORDS REGISTRY
IamGSD would like everyone with a muscle GSD to join the CoRDS Registry which has a special section for us (those in Europe can use the Euromac Registry). Please read about CoRDS, listen to the podcast and then join the registry on-line.
IAMGSD promotes walking courses to help people improve their condition. These have so far been held in the USA, UK and Germany, with more countries to be included in future.
